The Finished Product
What was your best day ever like? Was it the day where you accomplished the most, or was it the day where you were able to kick back and relax because you had just had the best week ever? Either way provided the same result, the best day of your life the difference is the persistence and constant achievement level required to give you your best day ever. We can look at what some might say is the best day of their life, their wedding day. Few would argue that the actual accomplishment of getting married is more important than the time, effort, collaboration, tears, laughs, experiences, and evolution of the relationship that results in a marriage. Was the marriage the accomplishment or was it all the time spent before the couple officially tied the knot and the time to be spent from now until death do they part? Ultimately a finished product takes time to develop, and the more polished the product the more valuable.
Factors that contribute to the finished product are often overlooked because the finished product is so complete that it eclipses exactly what went into the final presentation. For example, when you sit at a desk little thought goes into where it’s made, what type of wood or material it’s made of, how many screws it took to put it together, because at the end of the day the desk is there for you to use. You may not even know who bought it, where it was purchased from, how it got to the exact location that you needed it to be because who cares? The desk is there for you to use. The actions are unknown and the result is constant. Because there was so much work and actions put into the creation of the desk prior to the eventual consumer usage, the finished product can always perform. The conceptual difference to become a finished product in which ever industry people decide to commit to should not be what does the finished product look like, rather how do you become the finished product.
The conceptual difference is most of all apparent when we look at professional athletes. Lots of spectators see only the finished product. They see men and women of the highest athletic caliber competing against each other in professional athletics. After all there is no room for sub par in professional sports. Fans tend to care about results, not how a player can get them. I’ve never seen a fan or a losing team go over the teams practice regiment or nutritional supplements. Countless times I have seen sports fans take pride in the finished product. After all, “Super Bowl Champions” is a much more attractive term than, “hard working and disciplined group of people”. The common mistake people make is they forget the causation behind the first statement. The first statement can’t happen without the second.
The word life is defined by the conditional difference between inanimate objects and organic objects in that the latter has the ability to grow. In other words, the finished product in terms of a desk is not going to change much. The finished product in terms of a person is ever changing. So the outlook is not what should the finished product be, but how can we always become better to provide our friends, family, and loved ones with the best version of ourselves.
Don’t let failure outside of you get inside of you. No matter what happens to you, failure is an inside job. We can’t control the cards we’re dealt, but we can control the way we handle them. Start by cultivating the right attitude. The law of human behavior- sooner or later we get exactly what we expect – is this optimistic or pessimistic? – The answer reflects your attitude.
Martin Seligman observes that people who bounce back are optimists. No matter your situation, you can cultivate optimism by learning contentment.
Contentment is not:
1. Containing your emotions.
2. It’s not maintaining your current situation it means having a good attitude as work yourself out of it
3. Not power or money – true contentment comes from having a positive attitude – seeing solutions in every problem, believing in yourself and holding on to hope. No matter what happens to you a positive attitude comes from within.
4. Handicaps can only disable us if we let them. The real and lasting limitations are created in our own minds.
